I finally finished the beetle/bug quilt. I think I started it in June 2oo7. It is a costume order for a couple who collect the real thing, VW beetles. I like how it turned out. My favorite is the pink/orange convertible on the left.
I finally got around to making a sewing machine cover for my Kenmore. I still love that machine, even though I don't use it much anymore. The fabric is line and Heather Ross Gnome cotton. Tied with ric rac.
We went to the farms market yesterday. I loved it, it was the first time I had been and I will be going there again. Here is a picture of some veggies/fruit I got. I've already eaten half of the black berries. I also got snap beans, but they are cooking on the stove.
Lit Jo found a rock there and called it his treasure. When we got home he wanted to paint it, so he did. Blue with yellow dots. :o)
I had never made a top before. I saw this so cute pattern by "Amy Butler" in my local quilt shop and thought I'd give it a try. I picked out some pretty blue and brown fabric. ( blues and brown seem to be my favorite right now).
It took awhile to figure the pattern out because I had no clue what I was doing, but it was a lot of fun. I love working with fabric and sewing.
I got to use my "zipper foot" for the first time. OH....that's how that thing works. LOL . I can't wait to wear it out. I am even thinking of making another one.
I am a wife and mom of 2. I am a nature loving, camp crazy, sewing geek. Hand stitching is my favorite. Camping in our VW bus is our life. Our new adventure is Homeschooling. Warning:( I am more of a 'picture girl' and a horrible writer)
